Why choose me as your therapist?

Complementary Therapy in Southend on Sea.

From Bank Manager to Therapist!

I started my therapy training by obtaining a Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy at the Essex Institute of Clinical Hypnosis.

Clinical means I am trained to work with you as a therapeutic practitioner rather than a stage Hypnotist who is trained for entertainment purposes. 

Hypnotherapy means I can work with you in a therapeutic way while you are under Hypnosis.  Some people are frightened of the term Hypnosis but think how you feel when you are watching a film or reading a good book, you are in Hypnosis then too, you are focussed but not totally unaware of your surroundings and can come out easily if you choose to do so. 

And the Psychotherapy part pulls it all together by combining some cognitive (out of trance) work.

So, Clinical Hypnotherapy with Psychotherapy works with both the conscious and sub-conscious parts of your brain. 

I am trained to an advanced level in several modalities, including BWRT® and various forms of Hypnotherapy, and although I never use all of them for any one client, it means I will always have the perfect therapy available for your particular problem.

With Therapy I am able to help you to re-programme your brain to work how you want it to, not the other way around.

Because we are working with the logical part of your brain, we are often able to identify and help resolve your issue very quickly and much quicker than just cognitive or conventional talking therapies. This helps to keep the number of Therapy sessions you require to a minimum, which is good news for your pocket too.

So, I have a skillset that is proving to be immensely effective for a Number of Physical and Emotional Conditions.

My Background

My background is banking, starting at the age of 16 through to 37, when I started a family. I held various roles during my career, finishing as a bank manager, responsible for a very busy department of approximately 200 members of staff. 

I understand first hand the physical and emotional demands that working in the corporate world can bring.  Juggling office politics, unrealistic deadlines and budgets whilst maintaining a happy, motivated team and still keeping a big smile on my face!

I continued working for the bank on a part-time basis while I brought up my daughters.

In 2013, I developed tinnitus and hearing loss in my left ear. Medical investigations indicated they were caused by stress and anxiety. I went through a course of Therapy, sorted myself out and decided I wanted to be able to help people in the same way I had been helped. I enrolled on the prestigious Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy Course at the Essex Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy, where I was personally trained by one of the leaders in this science and founder of the Institute, Terence Watts. I went on to obtain a Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy.

I have continued to invest in myself and I am now also fully qualified in other therapeutic methodologies.

My work at my therapy practice in Southend on Sea gives me immense pleasure when I see the changes that take place in my clients.

I look forward to working with you.
